FYI: The default in ~arch is UDisks2 instead of UDisks1 for gvfs, and thus, GNOME and Xfce (/media vs. /run/media/$user)
What has changed:
make.defaults of targets/desktop/ is enabling USE="udisks upower" and
NOT enabling USE="gdu"
package.use of targets/desktop/ is enabling USE="gdu" for older
gnome-base/gvfs versions (as in, stable versions)
What it means:
>=gnome-base/gvfs-1.12 will use UDisks2 instead of UDisks1 by default
/run/media/$user is used instead of /media
new kernel options are required to be enabled, and they will appear with
CONFIG_CHECK when you emerge sys-fs/udisks:2
No need to reply to this, I just wanted to keep you informed. Not trying
to spawn another debate or flamewar.
